More info from the website: True Blue 100 – 50% abv (100 proof), 100% blue corn is a unique corn whisky made from roasted Atole, a Hopi blue corn meal. We use this rich and nutty corn to produce a whisky that we hope will bring something new to the corn whisky tradition. At cask strength, True Blue is the way Balcones distillers have always enjoyed our roasted Hopi blue corn whisky. Now there‘s finally enough to share. Feel free to add water if you want … we like our water separate.
